Quality Custom Distribution is making moves to the big state of Texas. The major distributor, a food-delivery subsidiary of Golden State Foods, supplies for names like Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, Chipotle, and McDonald’s. As the company continues to grow, Quality Custom Distribution feels that moving its corporate headquarters to Texas would be both conducive and beneficial.
“This centralization will enable us to continue to grow our distribution business and solidify our position as a dominant player in the food industry,” stated Ryan Hammer, Quality Custom’s Corporate Vice President and President of Golden State Foods’ Logistics Operations. “We are looking forward to expanding within the Dallas area, which we chose due to its central location, large talent pool, and excellent business community overall.”
In 1947, Quality Custom really hit the ground running after it acquired McDonald’s as a new customer. Due to that new partnership, Golden State Foods grew globally into an Irvine-based behemoth with $7 billion in revenues, handling various industry functions from making food to warehousing and inventory management to stocking an estimated 120,000 restaurants.
A statement said the move “will maximize company efficiencies by placing multiple services, including finance, accounting, customer service and purchasing, into one location.” Hammer stated that Quality Custom felt a need to “better align our corporate resources with our business and provide enhanced support to our distribution centers and to our customers.”
The company runs a nationwide chain of 19 distribution centers that warehouses and distributes food and supplies to individual chain restaurants, according to The Orange County Register. Quality Custom Distribution’s new headquarters will initially be home to between 30 and 45 workers, both relocations and new hires. The new facility is expected to be open by January.
